  UPnP Sharing - XBMC
UPnP media sharing is an extremely easy method of sharing your media (pictures/video/audio) on your network as it features automatic-discovery and does not require any configuration.
UPnP (short for "Universal Plug and Play") is a set of computer network protocols from the UPnP Forum.
Another profile which is not to be confused with the previous one is UPnP AV (for audio/video) which defines a set of functionalities to share/control and render content on a local-network.

  Universal Plug and Play - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The goals of UPnP are to allow devices to connect seamlessly and to simplify the implementation of networks in the home (data sharing, communications, and entertainment) and corporate environments.
The UPnP architecture is a distributed, open networking architecture that uses TCP/IP and HTTP to enable seamless proximity networking in addition to control and data transfer among networked devices in the home, office, and everywhere in between.
UPnP uses HTTP over UDP (known as HTTPU and HTTPMU for unicast and multicast), even though this is not standardized and is specified only in an Internet-Draft that expired in 2001.

 It Just Works: UPnP in the Digital Home
UPnP network technology allows personal computer and consumer electronics devices to advertise and offer their services to network clients.
UPnP technology is a unifying force: it defines a framework for a common, network-based platform for device collaboration.
UPnP implicitly enables the notion of a digital home platform: an abstraction that brings coherence to previously separate islands of connectivity in the home.

 Universal Plug and Play
UPnP is a distributed, open networking architecture that leverages TCP/IP and the Web to enable seamless proximity networking in addition to control and data transfer among networked devices in the home, office, and everywhere in between.
UPnP is broad in scope in that it targets home networks, proximity networks, and networks in small businesses and commercial buildings.
UPnP supports zero-configuration networking and automatic discovery whereby a device can dynamically join a network, obtain an IP address, announce its name, convey its capabilities upon request, and learn about the presence and capabilities of other devices.

 Is UPnP Plugging Jini's Bottle?   (Site not responding. Last check: )
UPnP is built on a lightweight set of open protocols and standards such as HTTP, HTTPMU (a multicast version of HTTP over UDP), SOAP and SPPD.
Once a UPnP client (typically called a control point) has discovered a device it wishes to interact with, it retrieves an XML-based device and service descriptions (soon to be replaced by WSDL descriptions in the next version of UPnP).
Since UPnP was announced, responsibility for UPnP has moved to the UPnP Forum (www.upnp.org), which boast a large membership list of participating companies (Sony, Philips, Siemens, IBM and Pioneer to name a few - Sun was a latecomer but also joined the Forum).

 UPnP - MythTV
The goals of UPnP are to allow UPnP devices on a network to detect each other and connect seamlessly, and to simplify the implementation of networks in the home (data sharing, communications, and entertainment) and corporate environments.
MythTV current UPnP AV MediaServer implementation is based on the CyberMedia Gate for C++ reference code (that is in turn based on CyberLink for C++) which is licenced under BSD open source licence.
The DLNA like the UPnP™ Forum made from consists of vendors, industry leaders in consumer electronics, etc. Their goal make sure different UPnP devices work together without problem, they feature a "DLNA CERTIFIED™" certificate for products that have passed their interoperability testing standards, that includes guidelines which should be followed when making a UPnP device.

 UPNPLib
UPNP™ is a protocol based on SSDP to discover UPNP™ compliant devices on a network.
UPNP™ is born in 1999 and seems to start to find a larger audience since most new Broadband ADSL router modems are UPNP™ compliant.
UPNP™ was another option that has a big advantage : There is a defined interface in IGD devices (Internet Gateway Device) to do such job which means that all IGD UPNP™ devices could work with the same piece of code.

 Open Source Linux SDK for UPnP Devices (libunp)
The Linux* SDK for UPnP* Devices (libupnp) provides developers with an API and open source code for building control points, devices, and bridges that are compliant with Version 1.0 of the UPnP Device Architecture Specification.
UPnP is an architecture that enables discovery, event notification, and control of devices on a network, independent of operating system, programming language, or physical network connection.
FreeBSD ports of both the SDK for UPnP Devices and the Linux UPnP IGD were contributed to the FreeBSD ports collection by Yen-Ming Lee.

 Using UPnP for Programmatic Port Forwardings and NAT Traversal - The Code Project - Internet & Network
UPnP extends this idea to the network: when a new network device is connected to the network, it can be automatically discovered over the network, and configured remotely from your machine over the network.
UPnP envisions a future where all devices are networkable and controllable over the network, such as light switches, thermostats, toasters, automobiles, etc. More information can be found here.
Moreover, with UPnP, the port mapping can be created even without any knowledge of the administrative password to the router, and thus can be created without the knowledge or consent of the user.

 SecuriTeam™ - UPnP Flawed Application
UPnP leverages TCP/IP and the Web to enable control and data transfer among networked devices in the home and around the home.
UPnP technology can be supported on essentially any operating system and works with almost any type of physical networking media - wired or wireless.
However, if a malicious user sends UPnP commands to the router, he or she could allow that inbound traffic to easily go right past the firewall function, and right to your computer.

 UPnP
UPnP can solve NAT (Network Address Translation) connection problems with active (PORT) mode.
The client is behind a NAT and wants to connect to an FTP server supporting PORT mode only (because the server is behind a NAT as well or due to security / firewall policies).
In this case without UPnP the ports have to be manually enabled and forwarded in the NAT router and a port range has to be defined in the FTP client configuration.

 Accessing to UPnP Contents - GeeXboX wiki
UPnP stands for Universal Plug and Play and is a network protocol aiming at providing the autodiscovery of devices and services of your Home Network.
The GeeXboX embeds a UPnP Control Point software that is able to auto-discover all UPnP Media Servers from your Home network and it simply mounts their contents to a dedicated mount point (/mnt/UPnP) on your system.
The UPnP Control Point that has been chosen to discover and mount UPnP Media Servers contents is djmount ([1]), a software written by Rémi Turboult that is using FUSE to mount UPnP Media Servers contents in userland.

 SANS Institute - Malware FAQ: Microsoft Windows UPnP vulnerabilities
UPnP was no exception, and while Microsoft didn't exactly make a big public deal of the Universal Plug and Play functionality in Windows ME and XP, the first posting on the Bugtraq mailing list appeared on Thursday, November 1, 2001.
The UPnP architecture is a distributed, open networking architecture that leverages TCP/IP and the Web to enable seamless proximity networking in addition to control and data transfer among networked devices in the home, office, and everywhere in between.
UPnP describes a set of protocols that will allow devices to talk to each other even though device A might not have any a-priori knowledge of the services offered and protocols spoken by device B, as long as both devices speak a common dialect as specified in UPnP.

Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) is an architecture for pervasive peer-to-peer network connectivity of PCs and intelligent devices or appliances, particularly within the home.
UPnP NAT Traversal can automatically solve many of the problems the NAT imposes on applications, making this an ideal solution for small businesses and consumers.
The better way to approach this problem is to have the device vendor add software or firmware to their device once to understand UPnP and have other devices and software be able to communicate with the NAT device using this same technology.
